    Google Local SERP Update: Old Pack Algo & Doubles

    Joy just wrote an interesting post on what appears to be the shrinking of the font size in the local search results. Anyone else seeing this?

    Google seems to be playing around a bit today. It seems that Blended results have disappeared.

    Got your PM with more info Tony.

    I'm not seeing any of that. All the same to me.

    You must be sitting on a test server.

    re: Google Local SERP Update: Old Pack Algo & Doubles

    So far, you're the only one I've talked to not seeing it. Go figure! I can't imagine it will last, but it's definitely...something.

    re: Google Local SERP Update: Old Pack Algo & Doubles

    Ya I'm seeing same old serps and am not seeing reports anywhere else yet.

    The reason I asked for screen shot in PM, is people use different terminology.

    When I say blended I'm referring to the pack.

    Are you saying the pack is gone? For all searches everywhere there is no more local blended 7 pack?

    OK based on tips from Tony, followed a string of Tweets. Cannot see the update in most SERPS but found a WEIRD one.

    re: Google Local SERP Update: Old Pack Algo & Doubles

    OK so I figured out PART of what's up. People, including Joy and Tony are reporting doubles on page 1. Some that rank in the pack also rank in organic.

    That combined with the "more results near city" link tells me that Google is starting to show the OLD pack layout. (Which has been around all along, but you would normally only see it for small towns or non-competitive searches.)

    Check out seattle chiropractor. Several lucky Chiros have double #1. They are in the pack also rank below in organic.

    TONS of DOUBLE #1 being seen and reported!
